    1. Thanks for your words. πŸ™‚ just made me wonder how the perception can change about a place, the before and after having visited a place can be so different. I mean, you use the word exotic, and I’m not sure how I would describe it..

  1. I did a day trip to Granada when vacationing in Costa Rica. I have been thinking about making a return trip to see more of Nicaragua. Thanks for the suggestions!

  2. I loved Nicaragua we spent 3 weeks there and chicken bussed our way around. I actually really liked Granada, wasn’t a fan of Leon, and San Juan del Sur wasn’t what I had hoped for, and Ometepe was awesome but scary boat ride back!

  3. Love to visit Nicaragua someday.. Standing on the roof of the church will be quite an experience for sure and chicken buses sounds so cool. Thanks for such cool reccos πŸ™‚

  4. Wow chicken busses seem interesting . I had no idea of this concept till I rrad your post. This seems to be one really amazing tour that you undertook and if possible sometime in the future I would do it too.
